I was traveling for business and there was a convention going on in the city and this was the only hotel with available rooms ( I now understand why). After checking in, when I got to my room I could not open the door. The light on the lock would turn green but the lock was not opening. I went... More

This is a traditional motel that was built in the 1960's. It used to be a Ramada Inn but now is in foreclosure and is a "bank owned" property. A Bennigan's Restaurant attached to the hotel is now closed. The hot tub in the pool area is closed "permanently" as it leaks from the bottom. The best things about this... More

I live in Elkhart and just wanted to have a night with the girls. The guys remodeling the part of the hotel were there as well that night smelling like straight up alcohol. The lady at the desk was rude about giving us towels (which were big enough for a two year old at the most) and she was just... More

We reserved two rooms, 224 and 229. Neither had hot water, when we asked about this at the front desk we were told that they were low on hot water due to excessive use the night before. Room 224 had a non working phone. Room 229 has a broken window, the rolls of toilet paper were stored on the bathroom... More

We stayed here last weekend while in town for a football game. We were a little leary because of the reviews we read. The hotel was clean, staff was friendly and its in a great location. There are plenty of restuarants close by. The pool was a little chilly, but very nice. The hot tub is out of order, which... More

The location is the only thing going for this hotel. It is just off the interstate and close to many restaurants. Our room was located next to the indoor swimming pool. There was no barrier whatsoever between our room and the deck to the pool. It was very loud until the pool closed shortly after 11pm. Although the hotel guests... More

It is almost impossible to get a last minute hotel for game day at Notre Dame and this was the only hotel available. The hotel is conveniently located right off the freeway just about 15 minutes for South Bend so it was a quick drive after the game. It was situated in the heart of chain restaurants so there was...
